  • Description

    Talks opened in New Delhi on Saturday (18 August) aimed at settling the differences which still exist between India and Pakistan in the wake of the 1971 Bangladesh war.

    The Pakistani delegation, led by Foreign Minister, Aziz Ahmed, arrived on Friday, and was met by the Indian team's leader, Mr. P.N. Haksar. There is no time limit on the talks -- the second in a month. The first meeting was in Pakistan and lasted a week.

    The two delegation leaders are optimistic that this time settlement will be reached. The main obstacle appears to be 195 Pakistani prisoners of war, whom Bangladesh wants to try as war criminals. Pakistan has demanded that the prisoners be freed.

    In addition, the fate of 90,000 Pakistani prisoners in India and the Bengalis now in Pakistan has to be decided.

    On his arrival, the Pakistani leader expressed his hopes that the new talks would be fruitful. Below is a transcript of his comments:-
